Abstract

Presented by: Dr. Antonio Nanni, Ph.D., P.E. Lester and Gwen Fisher Endowed Scholar Professor and Chair, Department of Civil, Architectural & Environmental Engineering University of Miami

This seminar presents the unique material properties of fabric-reinforced cementitious matrix (FRCM) and the provisions for its characterization, design, construction, and inspection. The presentation ends with a brief discussion of case studies on the use of FRCM system repair and strengthening. FRCM systems for repairing and strengthening concrete structures are an alternative to traditional techniques like FRP, steel plate bonding, section enlargement, and external post-tensioning. FRCM is a composite material consisting of one or more layers of cement-based matrix reinforced with dry fibers in the form of open meshor fabric. When adhered to concrete structural members, an FRCM system acts as supplemental, externally bonded reinforcement.
